During a two-day programme, you will learn the basic organisational design theory and how to apply the methods and tools of professional organisational design implementation to your own company.
The course is designed around the five phases that most projects go through – analysis, design, implementation, test and sustain. Throughout the course, the elements of the phases will be applied to participant cases. The course integrates application with state-of-the-art theory.
Leaders, HR partners, consultants and specialists responsible for shaping the organisation to fit its organisational strategy and goals. Participants typically work in corporate HR, strategy or transformation programmes or in consultant companies.

Participants must prepare a relevant case from their own company to be used for diagnostics and design during the course.
To ensure the best use of participant time, the course is short and dense and includes a lot of group work. This allows participants to work on individual cases and internalise the new insights.
This structure is only possible because participants have read Organizational Design: A Step-By-Step Approach, which forms the basis of the theory used on the course, and case from Microsoft prior to the course.
This is a demanding course with long days. However, it is not unusual to see participants leaving the course carrying a flipchart paper with key takeaways that they are going to apply to their organisation when they return.
